Cablegram 16 31 March 1938,

Reference Circular B 84 D.O. to Prime Minister. [1]

Please ascertain whether Note to be handed to German Government on
2nd April will be considered as de jure recognition of the
incorporation of Austria in the German Reich. If not, please
advise when recognition is to be extended, as practical questions
relating to naturalisation and passports have arisen and will
arise in Australia.
